dpCom Designer further increases efficiency gains with new automatic trench layout tool
The new release of Digpro’s family of tools for the network lifecycle of fiber networks, includes a tool for automatic generation of the trench layout. The tool uses background map information and the coordinates of the customer nodes to create a suggested layout. Relative costs for trenching along the streets, crossing the street and customer premises are used to guide the tool towards the most cost effective layout.
The tool is an integral part of the dpCom product and the results of the layout are stored as real objects in the same database as the existing network. Hence, the objects forming the layout can directly be edited & modified. Thereafter it will be filled with ducts, pipes and cables using the same dpCom mechanisms as for a hand-drawn trench layout.
By using the whole family of semi-automatic design tools in dpCom, customers are experiencing design efforts cut by half. With the new trench layout extension that gain is expected to increase even further.
